    Alright well b/c of me being an idiot I had to restore/re-jailbreak my phone earlier. I SSH'ed into the phone to put my old theme back into winterboard, and there is no folder there for winterboard anymore :confused: Does anyone know why this could be and how to get it back? I tried to create a folder called winterboard with a folder inside named "themes" and place the theme in there but it does not show on the phone even after this...wth?

    Because you haven't yet installed WinterBoard after you re-jailbroke?

    lol if that were the case I would go jump off my balcony...winterboard is installed on the phone and working (meaning I can use all the stuff in there currently, just don't know how to get anything else in there unless I solely DL through cydia)

    Folder should be located in /root/Library/Themes

    Just drop your theme folder into the "Themes" folder.

    There's no folder called that, if I make one will it automatically put it in winterboard?

    I am assuming you know how to SSH, correct? Cause when logging in via SSH, (you may use CyberDuck if you're on a Mac, i use WinSCP on Windows) as soon as you log in it should dump you right into the /root folder. If not, browse to the /root folder, then browse the "Library" folder inside that and there should be a folder shortcut inside that which says "Themes," and that is the folder you put your other theme folders into. If you do not have that, I have no idea what else to do, lol...

    Yeah that folder isn't there :( Now that I think about it I didn't see my mewseek folder anywhere either while searching...maybe I'll just restore and re-jailbreak later this week.

    I had the same problem recently, and I found that my themes folder was in the "stash" folder. Not sure if this helps but try looking for the stash folder.
